We are now about 2 weeks away from the launch of the 2017-2018 Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog. If today’s card doesn’t get you excited about new products, I’m not sure what will.
The color combo of Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive paired with the watercolor look of the papers is simply divine. Because I really wanted to showcase the beauty of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, I went with a sketch from Mojo Monday to give them the attention they deserve. The background paper is a bold watercolor image of daisies. I also added a strip of Calypso Coral pattern paper and an Old Olive pattern. If you’d like to see a few more of the papers from this collection, be sure to check out this card I created last week.
For the main panel, I did some 2-step stamping of the flowers and stems. Colors used were Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Tranquil Tide, and Pool Party. I brushed a bit of Clear Wink of Stella over the flowers to make them shimmer. The greeting is also from the Daisy Delight stamp set and was stamped at the top of the panel in Basic Black Archival Ink.
I honestly can’t believe how perfectly the large daisy turned out! I stamped the Daisy image twice in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White card stock. Next, I punched both images out with the Daisy Punch. Using a bit of ink from the lid of the stamp pads and my Clear Wink of Stella brush, I added some Calypso Coral and Old Olive to the petals in random strokes. For a final touch, I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center of the daisy.

I just can’t get enough of the cute, whimsical prints in the new Pick a Pattern Suite of products. The various patterns in the Designer Series Paper have been begging me to mix and match them. Aren’t the dinosaurs adorable? You can even see one peeking out from the inside of the card. ROAR! The Pieces & Patterns stamp set features images of a bear, flower, camera, mushroom, pencil, and dinosaur. You’ll also find some great greetings and some cute background fillers.
The layout for this card comes directly from CAS(E) this sketch! I knew it would be perfect for the bold mix of patterns, but would still maintain a clean look.
The “hello there” greeting was stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink onto Whisper White card stock. Next, I die cut it out with the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits. These are seriously my favorite set of dies! If you haven’t gotten them yet, you can order them HERE. They also coordinate with the Layering Circles, Squares, and Ovals dies.
This is the second card I have created with the Pick a Pattern Suite. You can see my first card in this post from earlier in the month.
